    If you CAN buy the Sager by saving up in the first place, then it's a no brainer. Save up for the Sager. Othewise, the gateway is great in it's price range too! :D

    this may be a dumb question or too general... (iv never owned a gaming notebook). whats the gaming experience on the sager np5793 such as the one in Prasad's sig or even any other high end gaming notebook compared to playing games on a gaming desktop...

    its not going to be as good as some of the higher end gaming desktops, but will still be good and the Sager has the best Video card available

    The gaming experience is fantastic. I come from my two year old desktop with geforce 6800, and currently I play every game on the market maxed out except Crysis (highest settings but low resolution or almost highest settings and medium resolution). :)

    Well just so you know the 8800 GTS is only like 10-15% worse then the GTX. But the Sager will have better build quality and a faster CPU (Even though that is very easy to upgrade for the 6860 in the future.) So if you can I say wait but if you really want a notebook now go for the Gateway.

    Not to mention a higher resolution screen, lesser weight, and superior support! :)

    This is gonna sound dumb, but how do you upgrade it? Do you do it yourself? Will Best Buy do it for you?
